How to remove the tick marks in JavaFX XY charts?

The javafx.scene.XYChart class is the base class of all the charts that are plotted in an x-y pane. By instantiating the subclasses of this class you can create various XY charts namely − line chart, area chart, bar chart, pie chart, bubble chart, scatter chart, etc.

In the XY chart, the given data points are plotted on an XY plane. Along the x and y axes, you will have the tick marks and tick labels. The tick marks represent various values with uniform intervals.

Removing the tick marks

The javafx.scene.chart.Axis class (abstract) is the base class of all the axes in XY charts. To create X and Y axes you need to instantiate subclasses of these classes

The NumberAxis class is used to create an axis for numerical values and the CategoryAxis class is used to create axis for string categories.

This class has a property named tickMarkVisible (boolean), it specifies whether to show the tick marks or not. You can set the value of this property using the setTickMarkVisible() method.

To remove the tick marks of an XY chart invoke this method by passing the boolean value false.
